MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – All eyes and ears were on Pope Francis as he celebrated mass before an all-clergy audience at the Manila Cathedral on Friday. But only until a theologian took to the lectern to sing the responsorial psalm.
Meet Kenneth Rey Parsad from the Diocese of Bangued, Abra in Northern Philippines.
He captivated the congregation and millions who watched a telecast of the event not only with his singing voice, but with his good looks, very good looks.
Soon after the mass, ABS-CBN signed him up for a new teleserye with a working title, “Forgive Me Father For I have Sinned.” Newly-wed Marian Rivera will play the lead actress role opposite Parsad.
Viva Films (which just changed its name to Viva il Papa Films) is reportedly considering Parsad to star in an upcoming film epic, ‘Padre Damaso.’
Blessings come in strange ways, and Parsad has no one to thank but Pope Francis.
